Implacable? Defiance? Relentlessness? Resolve?

But Sil doesn't model combat with anything like The Riddle of Steel's realism.
One solution I've seen and is partial to is replacing the concept of hit points representing health with hit points representing luck. E g replace "Constitution" with something like "Providence", "Destiny" or somesuch and "Hp" with something like "Aegis" or "Fate". Each hit that doesn't reduce this below 0 is effectivly absorbed by the characters plot armor and leaves him (almost) unharmed, and the one that does either kills or cripples him (as it should be).
